Is it possible to run snap applications on Ubuntu 16.04 as a LDAP user?

I always get 'permission denied' and I don't know what to do.

$ sudo snap install postman
postman 6.7.1 from Postman, Inc. (postman-inc✓) installed

$ postman
cannot create user data directory: /home/DOMAIN/user/snap/postman/81: Permission denied

It happens for an every snap application, not just Postman.


Same for installing with the --classic flag.

  • Does it also happen if the ldap user's home directory is just /home/<user>? That being said, you should probably post this question in forum.snapcraft.io – Andreas Hasenack Jan 13 at 15:37
  • I'm not sure if I can check it on my work computer without everything to be broken – Tony Lorencio Jan 14 at 6:45
